Overcoming Writer's block

So you have writer's block, that totally sucks. I feel ya, I do. But don't fret, we all go through it. Some writers will say push through and keep writing, even if it is shit. Sometimes you just have to take a step back from what you are working on. Other times it is as easy as working on a different chapter or working on a different piece all together. But every now and then I get a real nasty case of ICWFS (I can't write for shit) so what do I do? I save my work and walk away. I spend my time doing other things I enjoy.

So here is a list of things to do if you find yourself with  a case of ICWFS

  • Watch crappy reality TV
  • Read a book
  • Paint
  • Take a walk
  • Watch a  movie
  • Bake something
  • Listen to music
  • Read a magazine
  • Talk to a good friend 
  • Make a new friend if you don't have any (let's face it, us writers are a bit anti-social

There are plenty of other things to busy yourself with, but don't you give up it will pass.
